Logjam of Wishes

This post has won WOW Badge from Blogadda

When I was child my wish list was like….
I wish to climb a mountain of chocolates; I wish to have wings like birds so that I could fly and wished I had a flying carpet. But now if I look back, those innocent wishes filled in me passion and a belief that yes there could be one day that they may happen.

Wishes are so temporary; as time pass by our wishes just gets replaced with new ones and also wish list increases at a rapid pace. On a lighter note even God get confused which wish to full fill, as by the time it’s our turn we had already changed mind. Kelly Slater very aptly quoted, “For a surfer, it's never-ending. There's always some wave you want to surf”.

But don’t you think each one should have such cravings as whatever we wish for; it at least keeps our hopes alive or it could be a spark of life to move ahead. There are many things one does in life or aspires to do; each milestone achieved gives a life yet another challenge. Life is never ending journey of self, relations, and so on. But if asked to just jot down my wishes they could be….

·      I wish a world, where there is no place for diseases and all are healthy and happy.
·      I wish I could be digitally transferred from one place to another to tell my friends what I want to.
·      I wish I could be able to read all the great books in this world.
·      I wish I overcome all my fears.
·      I wish to do things which I have never tried before.
·      My friends and my family are my strength so I wish that they are around always.
·      I wish my deeds speak much louder than me.
·      I wish to do my bit for the society and feel happy about the contribution.
·      I wish to cross all major milestones.
·      I wish to achieve so much in life that I can inherit some.

If I start listing, the list goes on and on. On lighter note, now I want to taste all kinds of sweets of world, wish to dress up in all traditional outfits. But the question is how much is enough? Because heart full fillment is a big challenge in life and differs from person to person. How much ever you get, things keep on adding in wish list, it’s like logjam of wishes.
Neverending wishes - Aura of thoughts
Logjam of Wishes

There is no endpoint defined for desires but one should not forget that our wishes could trap us in a vicious circle of lure, desiring more and more thus creating deadlock; which is circular in which one cannot be out of it. One shall always wish for things which keep correcting us and make us a better person. Anthony J. D'Angelo precisely quoted “Become addicted to constant and never-ending self-improvement.”

Finally I would just say
“Wishes walks with us at a pace we want them to, so slow down.”
